2:35 pm
an open ended decision about protesting against. okay and. against the backdrop of over of all that anger area. the u. s. vice president mike pence is usually visit. there region. no you in the coming days how is the u. s. present all trump's announcement that i of recognizing jerusalem as the capital israel how's that likely to affect. that it is a by the vice president you think. well certainly affect his visit sums of the palestinian territories because the palestinian president's is he doesn't want to make him or her that from other palestinian officials as well. so. that's already a slap in the face and i think it's partly because and. mohammed abbas is a man of diplomacy he's a man who goes to the united nations and puts the palestinian case and. deals with other world leaders andnd for him personally thihis was such a slap in the face. that he actually has declared the peace process did and has

said that donald trump camembert broca and he doesn't want to mate donald trump's number two. he has also calls today for other nations to step up and followed erica's up late and recognize. east jerusalem as the capital of the palestinian territories so i now seeing that moves that campaign by him. to the other nations because a big boot disgruntlement the disappointment the despair i think that you can say that he feels at this moment. because it was there is an active reporting that from jerusalem. we just receiving word now that he's twenty five people have been injured in gaza off the israeli military carried out a series of as rocks marks the injured. children with israeli ministry says it is targeting a militant training camp. and a weapon step i would earlier in the day rockets were fired from gaza in the direction. of israeli towns.

2:38 pm
dangerous man yes i think got from and all of the present presidents of. goods they have one. opinion and one target and that's the and showing off. muslims and islam we have seen some violence in the region after research sponsor decision but not here in iran this rally which consisted of several thousand people. was very peaceful other many analysts who say mister trump's decision helps bolster iran's reputation on the arab street as a leading defender of the palestinian cause however. mister trump's incision is not good news for the many iranians who are hoping for better relations with washington especially after the nuclear deal a clearly mister trump is take it all on. a confrontational position with iran and his decision is sweet recognizing a jerusalem as the official capitol of israel only feels the bad blood today between washington and tehran. because it was wrong to say
2:39 pm
reporting that. from. tehran cash women's anger in the arab world and concern amongst washington's allies the u. s. security council held an emergency session earlier on today which the british un ambassador cool donald trump's announcement unhelpful. well egypt's you and us there warned it could have microbes a grave negative impacts on the peace process. a u. s. ambassador nikki haley accuse the united nations itself of doing more harm than good to prospects of peace in the region. adding that israel should not be bullied. the un has done much more damage to the prospects for middle east peace then to advance them. we will not be a party to that. the united states no longer stands by when israel is unfairly attacked and the united nations. and the united states will not be lectured to by countries that lack any credibility when it comes to treating both. israelis and palestinians fairly.
